Since 2009, CPR has given the gift of music to Colorado children through the Instrument Drive, a community program designed to promote and strengthen music education and appreciation across the state. With the support of our partners at the Colorado Institute of Musical Instrument Technology and The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, CPR has distributed 1,924 instruments to more than 100 elementary, middle and high schools and music programs in Colorado.
During the 2013 Instrument Drive, CPR collected 840 instruments. Special thanks to our listeners, community partners and the 13 drop-off locations that helped make this year's Instrument Drive a success.
